Cyclette is a monothe­mat­ic work. All three of its move­ments are based on one sin­gle theme that appears dif­fer­ent­ly from one move­ment to the next. After the intro­duc­to­ry flour­ish­es in the first move­ment, the first sev­en notes that form the ker­nel of the theme are stat­ed. The first move­ment is scored for brass, tim­pani and per­cus­sion. The sec­ond is scored for wood­winds, tuba, tim­pani and per­cus­sion. The entire band is used in the third move­ment which is also the largest and most exten­sive of the three move­ments. The piece is suc­cinct and cyclic, thus the diminu­tive title – a small cycle. It was com­mis­sioned by Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia, Berke­ley in 1984.
